Friendly Faces in France

I like to think of myself as an experienced traveler and don’t show any signs of being a tourist while exploring, but I know better than that. I look up at tall buildings and stare a little too hard while people-watching. To prepare for my 2019 trip to France, I reminded myself of the sayingContinue reading “Friendly Faces in France”

A Weekend in New York City

What do you get when you take a small-town girl from the United States and make her fall in love with traveling and cities? It turns into a woman who plans a trip with her bestie to visit the biggest city in America: New York City. My friend and I usually take a birthday tripContinue reading “A Weekend in New York City”

Why I Fell in Love With Scotland

Let me set the scene: After a four-hour train ride from London to Edinburgh, I stepped onto the platform at Waverley Station. On my first international solo trip, this next city was one that I didn’t know much about. Heck, the only reason I choose to make this part of my itinerary was because myContinue reading “Why I Fell in Love With Scotland”

Day Tours in Northern Ireland and Ireland

During my first solo international trip, I booked three separate day tours, back-to-back-to-back. Since I was by myself, I thought these day tours would be the easiest way to see lots of slights quickly. Looking back now, I can’t believe I powered through those long days and would wake up the next morning and doContinue reading “Day Tours in Northern Ireland and Ireland”

Lost in the Adventure: Trauma and Traveling

So it’s been a little over six months since I launched Lost in the Adventure in May. I have loved sharing my memories of my past trips and the tips and tricks I picked up along the way. About a month ago, I was feeling stumped on what to write next. Where do I goContinue reading “Lost in the Adventure: Trauma and Traveling”

Prices Of The Places I’ve Stayed In Paris, Brussels, And Amsterdam

If you haven’t checked out the others, make sure to go read the U.K. and Ireland and then the United States editions after you get done reading this one! The last one (for now…) will cover my stays in Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam. IContinue reading “Prices Of The Places I’ve Stayed In Paris, Brussels, And Amsterdam”

Prices Of The Places I’ve Stayed In The United States

Since I shared the prices of the places I’ve stayed in the United Kingdom and Ireland, I thought I would continue with a United States edition! In most of the places here I was with other people, so I will discuss the total price as well as my share of the bill. Like before, IContinue reading “Prices Of The Places I’ve Stayed In The United States”

Prices Of The Places I’ve Stayed In The United Kingdom and Ireland

We all love a good deal. My favorite kinds are the ones you find while planning a trip. Cheaper flights or bargains on accommodations, it doesn’t matter. As long as it checks all my boxes, I will be happy. The popular belief is that travel has to be expensive, but for me, that is notContinue reading “Prices Of The Places I’ve Stayed In The United Kingdom and Ireland”

Different Types Of Accommodations That Are Budget-Friendly

One of the most expensive parts of traveling is the accommodations. Sure, you want to stay at a nice place, but you don’t want to spend all your money somewhere you will hardly ever be. I guess that’s my mindset anyways. Now, I get it if you are truly on a “vacation” and need anContinue reading “Different Types Of Accommodations That Are Budget-Friendly”

Taking The Ferry From Cairnryan To Belfast

My first solo international trip was one for the books. I had booked an open jaw flight, meaning I would land in one place, London, and take off from another, Dublin. What to do in between those 10 days and those two countries was a blank-paged book I needed to start writing. As the storyContinue reading “Taking The Ferry From Cairnryan To Belfast”
